My Old Dog Book Reviews

"What completes the magic of "My Old Dog" is the photographs, which must be seen to be believed. It is incredibly difficult to photograph an animal. A few great photographers, like Isa Leshko, make magic of the moment when an animal’s soul as well as image are captured by the lens. Fusaro is one of these. Her photographs are, to begin with, gorgeously staged without appearing anything but spontaneous, rich with color and texture taking you instantly into the animal’s space. But above all, Fusaro makes magic with elderdogs’ eyes."

"This is a marvelous book. Beautiful photographs! Stories that can be read one at a time, for each one's special message. It lifts the heart and spirits!!"

"Wonderful tales and beautiful photographs of the magic that can happen when a heart is opened to allow the love of an older dog to enter. Second chances and true love - who could ask for more in a book?! This is the perfect read for anyone who has ever experienced the joy a dog can bring to your life!"

"I have been on pins and needles waiting for this book to arrive. Wow, I expected it to be good, but it has exceeded my already lofty expectations. The stories are beautifully written, and together they make a wonderful collection - all such different dogs with different lives, truly showing how enjoyable life with a senior dog can be. And the photos are gorgeous. They capture the spirit of these dogs and their people perfectly. I love that there is so much advice peppered throughout the book and even an entire section at the end with more knowledge and resources from the experts. Guess what a lot of people will be getting from me for Christmas this year?!?!?!"

"The book goes right to the heart. The people that care for these dogs are almost as special as the dogs themselves. Reading the stories about these amazing dogs is a truly a great read. I am a huge dog lover and an owner of a rescue dog, so these short stories really do go straight to the sole. Not only are the stories spot on, but the photography really bring the stories to life. The photos show the dog’s fun for a continuous life with their owners. I recommend this book to anyone at any age. Thank you to the author, Laura, and photographer Lori, for delivering this wonderful book!"

"A book to treasure and to give away! I can only echo what other reviewers have written... this is a wonderful book. It has inspiring stories and heart-warming photos. Laura Coffey and Lori Fusaro have done a remarkable job. I enjoyed it immensely and I will be giving copies to my siblings for Christmas this year. I'm sure they will enjoy it as much as I have. They have dogs and I'm a cat person... but I still love this book."

"This is one of the most beautiful books I've seen on senior dogs. The stories are touching, moving, funny and sad. The photos are unbelievably brilliant. Great gift...I've given 3 already! Laura Coffey and Lori Fusaro are truly the best team to come along in quite a while. They have captured the love of rescue and giving second chances. I strongly recommend this book to all."

"This book touches your heart. The photographs are truly amazing. I flipped through the book several time before ready the stories because the photos are just stunning. Then you read the stories and they are heart-warming. They make you laugh and some make you cry. It's a wonderful book and would make a great gift for any dog lover. My next rescue will definitely be a senior."
